Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
C- 0% Age of Love: Season 1 (TV, 2007) The so-called attempts to debunk ageist stereotypes and prejudices about older women that keep the show steeped in irrelevance. ‐ Philadelphia Weekly

D 35% Welcome to the Captain: Season 1 (TV, 2008) For all the lameness that happens at the Captain, the most unforgivable is how this show wastes the talents of [Jeffrey] Tambor. ‐ Philadelphia Weekly

3/5 61% The Newsroom: Season 3 (TV, 2014) Even though HBO practically renewed and canceled season three on the same day, Sorkin seems to be making sure he leaves on his own terms, reminding everyone he's out for now but not out for good.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

82% The Last O.G.: Season 1 (TV, 2018) It's true. The Last O.G. may be the best thing Tracy Morgan has ever done.‐ Village Voice

73% Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and the Notorious B.I.G. (TV, 2018) Unsolved does subtly show us how the life and times of Biggie and Tupac have seeped into our public consciousness over the years. Their untimely deaths have turned them into unexpected martyrs whose ghetto gospel many now revere as canon.‐ Village Voice

No Score Yet Drunk History: Season 5 (TV, 2018) It's almost amazing how Drunk History has yet to run out of steam with its simple premise...What's most impressive about History is how Waters sneakily tries to hip viewers to moments and figures they really should know about. ‐ Village Voice

No Score Yet Another Period: Season 3 (TV, 2018) In its own farcical, extravagantly exaggerated way, Another Period shows how women have always had to fight for respect, for equality, for a seat at the table. For all its lewd, ludicrous antics, this is just the show we need.‐ Village Voice

2/5 78% Power: Season 3 (TV, 2016) By piling a new, hot mess on top of the hot mess that surfaced this season, Power has done its job accordingly.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

93% Documentary Now!: Season 2 (TV, 2016) Yes, Documentary Now! gives Armisen and Hader the chance to play the same oddballs they used to play on SNL, but in a more extended, nuanced manner. ‐ Village Voice

86% Empire: Season 1 - Who I Am (TV Episode) I would be all for this new direction if it didn't feel so frantically, frenetically slapped together.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

100% Empire: Season 1 - Die But Once (TV Episode) "Die" was certainly Empire at its most Shakespearean.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% Empire: Season 1 - Sins of the Father (TV Episode) After weeks of seesawing between trashiness and earnestness, the show fully embraced its soapy side - and it made things a whole lot more exciting.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 86% Empire: Season 1 - Unto the Breach (TV Episode) For all its tonal seesawing, Empire once again showed, like it did in "False Imposition," that it works best when the family bands together for the greater good.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

86% Empire: Season 1 - The Lyon's Roar (TV Episode) "The Lyon's Roar" is another prime example of how this show can go from intriguing to inept at a moment's notice.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 100% Empire: Season 1 - Our Dancing Days (TV Episode) Whereas the first half of "Dancing" had its dimwitted moments, the show seemed to straighten itself out in the second half, becoming both dramatically compelling and entertainingly soapy with a strong finish.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

2/5 67% Empire: Season 1 - Out, Damned Spot (TV Episode) "Out, Damned Spot" highlights Empire's unfortunate knack for creating inconsistencies in its characters. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 83% Empire: Season 1 - Dangerous Bonds (TV Episode) "Dangerous Bonds" points the show in the right direction. A strong follow-up to last week's also surprisingly good episode, "Bonds"... shows each member of the Lyon family following separate paths.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 100% Empire: Season 1 - False Imposition (TV Episode) Empire resiliently bounced back after last week's dismal installment... with "False Imposition," an episode that certainly gave us a better understanding of these characters and their motives than have previous episodes. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

1/5 86% Empire: Season 1 - The Devil Quotes Scripture (TV Episode) From the embarrassing story lines to the ridiculous dialogue to the scenery-munching overacting, this show has gone from being entertainingly trashy to just plain trashy. And that's no fun to watch. ‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

57% Empire: Season 1 - The Outspoken King (TV Episode) "The Outspoken King," the show's sophomore episode, certainly does have a lot of shrews that need taming.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

71% Empire: Season 1 - Pilot (TV Episode) From the minute we first see Terrence Howard's Lucious Lyon... we know this sudsy soap-opera is going to get more over-the-top with each passing minute.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

2/5 60% Wayward Pines: Season 1 - Cycle (TV Episode) Well, that was kinda disappointing.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
Read More | Posted Jul 24, 2015
4/5 83% Wayward Pines: Season 1 - The Truth (TV Episode) "Truth" was an episode for all those impatient viewers who needed some answers, like, yesterday.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 92% Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 - Eldorado (TV Episode) As hit-or-miss as Boardwalk Empire was during its five-season run, you can't say it didn't have a tale worth telling, full of characters both real and semi-fictional, living their lives until they know damn well they couldn't anymore.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 82% Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 - Friendless Child (TV Episode) Even though we have one more episode left to go, the penultimate episode, "Friendless Child," makes sure our central character's reign as the boss of Atlantic City reaches its finite end.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

4/5 100% Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 - Devil You Know (TV Episode) Chalky's sacrifice was the most profound and poetic, fitting for such a profound, poetic character. Chalky may have been an inner-city kingpin, but he also had the soul of a romantic poet.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 100% Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 - King of Norway (TV Episode) Well, we have three episodes left in the Boardwalk Empire saga and, as "King of Norway" shows, things are beginning to unravel at a breakneck pace.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 92% Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 - Cuanto (TV Episode) How much cocaine is Capone going to snort before he realizes that it's probably not a good idea to bash in the heads of your underlings?‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

3/5 85% Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 - What Jesus Said (TV Episode) As satisfactory as most of the ep was, I couldn't help thinking the whole Chalky and Buck subplot was suspenseful but superfluous.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

5/5 100% Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 - The Good Listener (TV Episode) Written by Terence Winter and directed by Allen Coulter, "The Good Listener" crackles more plotwise than last week's leisurely-paced season opener, setting up more action and conflict that'll permeate the season.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture

91% Boardwalk Empire: Season 5 - Golden Days for Boys and Girls (TV Episode) Boardwalk looks like it's going to remind us in its final episodes the past always comes back around, either repeating itself, returning to haunt somebody or just ready to bite somebody in the ass. I can't think of a better way for the show to go out.‐ New York Magazine/Vulture
